I'd love to be able to win this, but with just 80k Miles I am sure I can't win the SEA-ATL package

And I missed the domestic flight back from LAX-DTW earlier this year.

RIP

I enjoyed flying many of the real things when they were painted with the red tail.

Always one of my favorite flights, upstairs.

Hey SkyMiles Team any chance you might add an option to buy just the hangar party in MSP? I see you're offering that in DTW and with a wife who will be 39.5 weeks pregnant on 12/20, I don't think the flight is a great idea for me, much as I would love to do it. But I could totally do the last party... Please? Pretty please?

Any ideas what these trips might go for? I'm absolutely going to put in, but not sure what this might end up at.

ETA: Asking people's guesses, not skyteam. I've never seen/done a skymiles experience before so not sure how high things get bid up.

Anyone actually able to get a bid put in yet? Page says the auction is open but every time I hit place big, I just get redirected back to the general sm experience page.

Thanks for this update. I often forget to check what's going on in the SkyMiles Experiences. Great opportunity!

Ah, so many trips on this bird over the years. I remember taking the "747 Shuttle" MSP-ORD almost weekly back in the NWA days, and flights to NRT. A sad day as she gives way to the new era flying technology. I'll make a bid but suspect this will go for BIG SM's.

Maybe they can sell items from the aircraft. A row of seats or the serving cart for the "man cave".

I had the same problem (not that I expect to win). If I try to bid, I just get redirected to the SM Experiences Page. If I click the "Login" button on the bidding page, it takes me to the SM Experiences Page (which shows me as logged in already).

Good luck to all those with mega SM balances! I'm jealous but even Tx'ing my 90k Amex points over won't be enough, I'm positive of it.
